1The Rev. Reginald Bigg Wither was a nephew of the Rev. William Bigg Wither, curate of Otterbourne, and he published in 1887 a History of the foundation and of the chief incidents in the gradual establishment of St. Thomas' Home, Basingstoke, the Winchester Diocesan Penitentiary for Friendless and Fallen Women. CMY evidently selected works she thought would interest the inmates.
